Flashback Post: Pucker Up in Purplish Hues!

**This post was originally published on September 30, 2009.

Everything old is new again and makeup is no exception! During my high school and early college days, dark, muted lips were all the rage and it looks like it's making a strong comeback this season.

Me back in college circa 1998. Try to overlook the Aaliyah-esque swoop 'do! 

Celebrities such as Chanel Iman, Rihanna and Kelly Rowland have all been seen out and about sporting dark plum and berry-colored lips. The perfect alternative to classic red, purples add a bit of unexpected pizazz to puckers.

And if you're afraid to try this trend, remember lip color is a fun and easy way to switch up your look without the commitment. I've been taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting this lovely look with Maybelline's Color Sensational's incredibly pigmented purplish hue, Madison Mauve. Not only does it provide a rich color, it moisturizers lips too!

Maybelline's Color Sensational lip colors in Plum-Perfect,Madison MauvePlum-tastic, and Yummy Plummy (not pictured) available at drugstores nationwide, $7.49

Did you used to wear this lip color back in the day? If so, would you rock it again this fall for a vampy look?
